As per sources a 17-year-old student named Sahil allegedly committed suicide in Hyderabad by shooting himself in the head with a double barrel gun over his failure to crack the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Mains exam here on Tuesday.
This incident comes just days after nearly 20 students ended their lives following a fault in their intermediate examination results in Telangana.
Sahil allegedly used the pistol of his father, a retired army jawan, to kill himself at his house in the Neredmet neighbourhood in the early hours of the day.
The student took coaching at Aakash Institute for the JEE test but he failed to qualify. The JEE results were announced on Monday.
Sahil’s father had scolded him for failing the exam and for not concentrating on his studies. Depressed over his failure and the scolding from his father, Sahil is suspected to have taken the extreme step.
